Fine Art and Design in Education

Can you draw and paint well? Would you like to bring people into contact with art and culture? Do you have what it takes to open yourself up within the field of art and culture, to express yourself, and to make statements? Do you want to make a contribution to society through your creativity? Then come to Maastricht for the bachelor programme leading to qualification as a Lecturer of Fine Arts and Design.


What does the programme involve?

This programme is characterized by its broad approach to 'art'. You will not only be prepared for the profession of teacher; you will also develop your skills in the fields of drawing, painting, sculpture, graphic design, photography, and film. Art theory (art history, comparative arts, philosophy of art) will also form a major part of the programme from the very beginning.

More than art only

Teaching is a very varied profession for which you will need to have a very wide range of skills. Being a good artist is not enough. You must also be able to share knowledge in an interesting and absorbing manner and be able to encourage and motivate others. You will therefore also be taught the subjects didactics (science of teaching) and teaching methodology. An enterprising attitude to work is also important these days. An internship and work on projects are important components of the programme.

As the study programme will be taught in Dutch, you will need to have a good command of Dutch. If Dutch is not your native language and you have a non-Dutch diploma, you must pass the ‘State Exams Dutch as a Second Language (NT2)’ at level 2 before starting the programme. If you are not up to this level, you can follow a course in Dutch as a second language (NT2).


Lower tuition fee for new students
If it is the first time you are enrolling in a bachelor's degree programme, then you may be eligible to pay only half of the statutory tuition fees for the first two years when you are an EU-citizen.

A broad base in the first year

The first year is  broad in its scope. You will get acquainted with various visual arts disciplines as well as learning general theory.

Excursions to Berlin and are just examples of the fascinating annual cultural trips that are organized for students.

During your studies, you will have the opportunity to take part in numerous projects offered from year two onwards. These include several projects in cooperation with municipalities in the region and institutions of higher education.

Good job prospects

 If you choose a career in education, your job prospects are good. The number of vacancies in teaching is increasing rapidly due to the growing numbers of older teachers retiring.
